• Authorities to give update on efforts to ID victims in Allenstown murder cases


    CONCORD, N.H. - Authorities piecing together the life of a deceased man suspected of killing at least six women and children are going to discuss efforts to identify four victims found in barrels near a New Hampshire state park.


    Terry Peder Rasmussen died in a California prison in 2010. Authorities believe his victims included an unnamed woman and three girls found near Bear Brook State Park in Allenstown.

    In 1985, a hunter discovered the first two bodies - the woman and a girl believed to be 9 or 10. In 2000, an investigator found the other two girls - one believed to be 2 or 3 and the other 3 or 4.

    They believe the woman is likely the mother of the eldest and youngest girls. DNA tests showed Rasmussen fathered the middle girl.

    Authorities are discussing their efforts at a news conference Thursday.
